People who live in a country have lot of information about their nation and they can easily help the tourism company in planning process. The Philippines tourism industry also made a promise to a country that they will help in increasing employment opportunity and improving all rural areas so that tourist like to visit there. Further, if all planning is done in a systematic manner then it will help people of Philippine in raising their standard of living.

The higher tour sits develop a suitable strategy and policy which help in the success of tourism development plan (Sharpley and Telfer, eds., 2014.). The feedback system is introduced by the government which helps in feeling the gap between actual desired of tourist and offer given by a tourist. In this feedback is taken by a tourist which help in identifying the desired need of both existing and potential customer. Interactive planning is very important for the tourist company as well as for government so that suitable changes can be made in their tour package offer.

Apart from this, tourism company need to introduce a tourist activity which help in not pollute the environment or cause any damage to destination. For this purpose, government focus on using a high tech aspect to reduce this pollution problem.

Different method to measure tourist impact with references to Philippines case study
There are several method available which help in measure the tourist impact. There are some positive and negative impact for this tour company need to formulate appropriate strategy.

Economic measure: According to this, income of local people can be compared after and before the season in which tourist visit the Philippine. Further this help in identifying how much profit local resident earned form the tourism activities in their nation. Further it helps in measuring whether this development is negative or positive for the country (Healy, van Riper and Boyd, 2016. ). There is a STEAM model which help in measuring the quantitative impact on the local people. Along with this Cambridge economic model help in getting idea of economic impact of tourist activity. This model have two stage, in first stage calculation done of the volume and value of the day of visitor while in second stage economic impact of visitor on a local economy can be calculated.
Environmental measurement: Environmental impact assessment is method which help government of Philippine to measure a environmental effect of tourism. Through this government can easily identify which tourist activity is harming the environment of Philippine and which activity are safe for nation (Healy, van Riper and Boyd, 2016.). Further if any activity affect the surrounding environments of destination then government can use environmental impact assessment technique for protecting the environment. There is also another way though which damage to coastal area can be reduce such techniques are environmental auditing. Apart from this, it is necessary for the government of Philippine to protect the environment and destination so that more tourist can attract toward the destination.
Evaluating method of resolving a conflict of interest and to ensure the future welbeing of tourism development
In the present time, conflict between different stakeholder become a threat for the tourism company and for country growth and elopements. As per given scenario it is is clear that president of Philippine is looking for the development of tourism in their country (Larionova, , , Zaitseva. and Zhukov, 2015). For this purpose it also visits to a different destination and posted some picture of destination where it visits. In this case of Philippine, conflict arises when president posted a image which it is touching the corals, as according to the law it is completely prohibited to harm a natural beauty of nation. According to the rules and regulation tourism company built a fragile of natural environment so that no human can destroy the environment. It is necessary for the government of Philippine to take action for preventing the natural environment so that no conflict can be arises between a stakeholder.
Furthermore, for resolving the conflict between stakeholder it is necessary to take some preventive measure for protecting an environment (Larionova, Zaitseva and Zhukov, 2015). For this government can adopt new development approaches and promote those tourist activity which are not harmful for the environment. It can also implement an integrated coastal management which help in protecting natural look and tourist also find it interesting. This coastal management program also help in introducing an eco-friendly product which will support a local community. The another conflict is that inporer behavior and disturbance for local people because of intensive development and new hotels. This all negatively affected the people who live near the forest area. There is also a conflict of privatization of interest among stakeholder for making sure future well being. Further revenue of local people is getting low which increase the conflict among them. To resolve this conflict government need to provide a employment opportunity to a local people so that they get satisfied with a change taken in tourism development.
Analyzing the implication of balancing supply and demand
Tourism industry of Philippine need to keep a proper balance between a supply and demand for success. For a proper balance tourism company need to focus on what they are offering to tourist so that they attract to come in their country. As Philippine is developing country and it has a limited resource (Torres-Delgado and Saarinen, 2014). Which need to preserve for fulfilling the needs and demand of tourist. Further it is necessary to do forecasting that how much visitor visit in their nation if present and future. After analyzing future need tourist company need to provide proper support to them so that demand of tourist can meet on time. Further government need to take some action so that balance between supply and demand can be fulfilled of tourism. Apart from that, local people also play an important role in meeting the needs and demand of people. They can forecast in which area need to develop hotel for tourist and transport facility, so that tourist not face any type of problem related to stay and transport at a Philippine. Tourist company need to fulfill the needs and demand of tourist on time, if not done so revenue can be decrease and industry may suffer from loss. In a Philippine, tourist company is focusing on fulfilling the needs of tourist so that high revenue can be generated which help in growth of economy.
Evaluating the moral and ethical issues of enclave tourism in the Philippine
Enclave tourism is a development of one area in appropriate way so that people not like to visit that place again and again and avoid visiting other place. Tourism industry of Philippine need to keep its customer satisfied by offering them various type of luxury services and render them a good experience (Briassoulis and Van der Straaten, eds., 2013). Philippine is a developing country so enclave tourism play an important role in its development. Tourist industry of nation can develop a coastal area so that it can offer numerous services to its customer such as, swimming, club etc. apart from that, there are some moral and ethical issue arises due to enclave tourism. There is a little benefit to the local people and profit of hotel is also declined because tourist like to stay near the destination. For resolving this problem it is necessary that proper information related to a destination given tourist so that they not feel dissatisfied or cheated. Further, fair transportation facility need to provide to tourist and a hotel facility so that people not face any type of issues. Enclave tourism not benefited the the local population in term of generating revenue. Further tourism company should bnot focus only on a making a destination attractive but they also need to make sure that people live near the destination may not be affect by their tourist activity.
